3. Ljubljana Slovenia
The Slovenian capital doesn’t get nearly as much credit as it deserves. Often overlooked in favour of nearby Bled (which is indeed stunning), Ljubljana has an out-of-this-world charm that makes it one of the most underrated cities in all of Europe.
Ljubljana is definitely a place where romance is in the air. The city owes its romantic character to its historical appearance on the one hand and its youthful energy on the other. Life moves at a relaxed pace and people still take time to sit around in open-air cafés and admire the city’s jaw-dropping views.
The picturesque setting for your romantic getaway is enhanced by an ancient hilltop castle towering over the city, the dragons that stand as a symbol of Ljubljana, and the remarkable stories behind the city’s historical streets.
Ljubljana is probably one of the few cities in the world whose central town square is adorned with a statue of a poet rather than some political or military hero. The poet, France Prešeren (1800–1849), who wrote mostly in Slovenian and is best known for his sonnets, was one of Europe’s great Romantic poets.
Attached to the façade of a building across the way from the statue of the poet and the muse of poetry, designed by the architect Maks Fabiani and the sculptor Ivan Zajc, is a portrait statue of Prešeren’s actual muse, Julija Primic, who never returned the poet’s love. The immortal story about this unrequited love inspired the Brazilian writer Paolo Coelho, who used Ljubljana as the setting for his probably most romantic novel, Veronika Decides to Die.
